I'm hoping someone can suggest an extension we can use to add to our existing customer dashboard. We'd like the ability to allow our customers to see their spending with us, habits, and maybe even suggestions on how to help them save money by ordering less frequently (a projection on what they will likely order so to speak). This may be along shot, but I'm putting it out there just in case!
Thanks @MarketInsights - I do see a couple of interesting functions we might take advantage of here. But I'm really looking for them to see more in their dashboard in regards to how often they purchase, suggested add-on sales, statistics, etc.
I know this would be tacking the issue from a different angle, but have you considered Grocery List-type extensions?
They often allow you to provide discounts to regular buyers and to send reminders when it's time to re-order.

If you’re interested in reporting on historical customer-level purchasing activity, a solid approach may be to warehouse your data in an outside reporting platform, rather than adding an extension into your existing Magento build.
The Magento Analytics platform (formerly known as RJMetrics) warehouses all relevant DB tables in your Magento build (including `customer_entity` and `sales_flat_order_item`), and hosts a visualization layer that raw data can be easily exported from. A common use case for our users is to export an email list for all buyers of a particular SKU, for import into their email marketing platform of choice (like Pardot or Marketo).
Any other actionable analysis is simple to visualize in the platform as well, so long as the data exists inside your DB. If you’re interested in complex product-level reporting like affinity analysis, Magento Analytics users can leverage the expertise of our Professional Services team as well.
I’m curious - what type of action are you planning to take with exporting customer- and product-level purchase data?
